Condensation and black mould

Condensation in itself is not a problem, but the black mould that can result from excessive condensation is. This black mould is caused by excessive condensation. It is toxic and can cause respiratory problems over time.

We are responsible for repairing any structural defects, maintaining the fabric of the property so it is watertight and preventing where possible any leaks.

Our customers will be expected to provide adequate heating and ventilation and will report any early signs of black mould to avoid a potential accumulation of the hazard. Where mould does appear, we will encourage customers to act quickly to remove it and prevent it spreading. This can be done by using a disinfectant or a fungicidal wash and we will provide a fungicidal kit upon request.
